Two German politicians made history when they were elected to the country’s parliament on Sunday. Tessa Ganserer and Nyke Slawik, both of the Greens party, are the first transgender women to win a parliamentary seat in Germany. “It is a historic victory for the Greens, but also for the trans-emancipatory movement and for the entire queer community,” Ganserer told Reuters. Ganserer, who has been a member of the Bavarian State Parliament since October 2013, said the results were a symbol of an open and tolerant society. Ganserer has focused on fighting for equal rights for women, the LGTBQ community and disabled community. A mother of two, she hopes to make legislative changes to allow lesbian mothers to adopt children, according to Reuters.
